A contact lens exam can help an eye doctor on our team determine whether contact lenses are right for you and help you get the most comfortable, healthy fit for vision correction. At Total Vision Eye Health Associates, our optometry specialists in Port Orange, FL, offer contact lens exams to help you get the right contact lenses for your needs. Read below to see why you might need an exam and what the process entails.
Why You Might Need a Contact Lens Exam
A contact lens exam is important for several reasons. First, not everyone is a good candidate for contact lenses. If you have certain eye conditions, such as dry eyes or an irregular cornea, you may not be able to wear contact lenses.
Second, even if you are a good candidate for contact lenses, you need to have an exam to make sure you get the right type of lens. There are several different types of contact lenses available, and an eye doctor on our team can help you choose the right one based on your vision needs and lifestyle.
Finally, a contact lens exam is important to ensure that your contact lenses fit properly. Ill-fitting contact lenses can cause a host of problems, such as irritation and redness.
What the Contact Lens Exam Process Entails
An eye doctor on our team will conduct a thorough eye exam to determine if you are a good candidate for contact lenses. He or she will also ask you about your vision needs and lifestyle to help you choose the right type of lens.
Once you have chosen the right type of lens, we will take measurements of your eyes to ensure that the lenses fit properly. We will also teach you how to clean and care for your lenses.
How Contacts Help with Vision Correction
Contacts are a popular choice for vision correction because there is not much risk of them falling off during the days, such as when playing sports. Contacts also provide clear vision and do not obstruct your view like glasses can. However, to experience these benefits, it is important to get a contact lens exam and to choose the right type of lenses for your eyes.
